Critic Reviews for The Lightkeepers

All Critics (1)

While it's a feature of commendable morality and casting accomplishment, the filmmaker once again submits a bloodless viewing experience slavish to retro dramatic ambiance, while lacking the directorial chops required to keep it all awake.

Audience Reviews for The Lightkeepers

Boy. I never thought that Richard Dreyfuss could ruin a movie, but this one he did. He was absolutely the wrong person for this part. His acting abilitles were terrible, over-the-top, and laughable. The surrounding cast was pretty good, however, and the story was nice. Too bad....

a finely constructed & acted period piece set in 1912 about a crusty old lighthouse keeper who is forced to deal with issues when a stranger washes up on shore and becomes his assisstant and his wife also shows up after a number of years.
